Zenza Bronica ETR S no bulb (b)?

  1. Ive been given one of these for christmas 2nd hand and am I right in
    thinking it has no bulb setting? The manual given with it is for
    the ETR Si which states it has a bulb feature. Might have to take
    it back if not as its what I use 70% of the time.

    Thanx for any help or advice.

  2. If it's an ETRSi than turn the shutterspeedknob completely beyond 8sec (marked in orange) and there you se B in orange. That's bulb.
  3. Jim:

    I have a Bronica GS-1 system, but all Bronica mnodels are basically similar, so I'll try to respond.

    There is no Bulb setting on any of the Bronica SLR lenses as far as I know, but rather a "T" setting (as in "time") that is operated via a slide switch on the barrel of the lens. Pull out the set screw that holds the switch in the "A" (as in "auto") position and slide it to "T." Then release the shutter as usual. The shutter will remain open until you slide the switch back to the "A" position. Not quite a Bulb capability, but it allows long exposures without drawing on the battery.

    Hope this helps.
  4. There are indeed no bulb settings on the lenses but there is on the ETRSi body, just like I explained in my previous post here.
  5. The ETRS camera has no bulb setting, but it's on the lenses as described above. It works just fine on my ETRS.
